Continuing to build off an already extensive line of personal defense ammunition options, the addition of the HST .357 Magnum and .327 Federal Magnum loads gives users a reliable and effective personal defense option for revolvers.
“When it comes to choosing a caliber for personal defense, the .357 Magnum and .327 Federal Magnum continue to be popular choices,” said Federal Ammunition Handgun Product Director, Mike Holm. “A big reason for the continued popularity of these calibers is the preference to carry a revolver for everyday carry. We are excited to add these new loads to the already proven line of HST Personal Defense handgun ammunition.”
Reliability is key especially when it comes to choosing self-defense ammo. To remove any doubts of performance, the HST 357 Magnum and 327 Federal Magnum boast a nickel-plated case for long-term corrosion resistance. The high-performance primer ensures consistent ignition when it is needed most.
“Users that want to carry a magnum caliber for personal defense, want to utilize the full benefit of them. The specially engineered 104-grain .327 Federal Magnum and 154-grain .357 Magnum HST Jacketed Hollow Points were designed to take full advantage of magnum cartridges with consistent terminal performance,” continued Holm.” The bullet still has to perform well in personal defense scenarios. This is why the HST JHP was built to pass through a variety of materials without plugging up. The bullet jacket and core hold together to provide nearly 100-percent weight retention through common defensive barriers.”
The HST 357 Magnum and .327 Federal Magnum join an already proven line of Personal Defense HST products that include .30 Super Carry, 9mm Luger, 9mm Luger +P, .357 SIG, .40 S&W, 10mm Auto, .45 Auto, and .45 Auto +P.
